Be the One at Glenarden American Legion Post 275

Glenarden, MD

American Legion Post 275 hosts event aimed at reducing rate of veteran suicide.

American Legion Post 275 in Glenarden, Maryland, will host an event aimed at reducing the rate of veteran suicide. The American Legion is leading a nationwide effort — “Be the One”— to eliminate the stigma related to mental health treatment, and in turn, lower the number of veterans who die by suicide every day.

The number of veterans who die by suicide every day is estimated to be between 17 and 22. The American Legion has elevated Be the One to be its top priority, empowering veterans, servicemembers, their family members and civilians to act appropriately when a veteran may be at risk. This event intends to bring more awareness to the problem while providing resources to those who may be able to help save the life of a veteran.
